More than three years after first filing for a liquor license transfer and almost two years after opening their restaurant, the owners of Meet 27 are closer to overcoming opposition from a small group of neighbors. The decision, from the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, went largely in favor of the Remington restaurant, which has been embroiled in what the court described as a "long-running dispute between a Baltimore City restaurant and its neighbors. " The court disagreed with a lower court ruling that went the neighbors' way.  The upper court determined that the Board of Liquor License Commissioners of Baltimore City, commonly known as the Baltimore City Liquor Board, was within its rights when it granted the transfer to Meet 27 in August 2010 after first denying it two months earlier.

For the sixth time in the past two years, owners of a Howard County liquor outlet were fined for selling alcohol to an underage police intern - despite examining side-profile, "under 21" driver's licenses. This time, a $1,000 fine was imposed on Vilim Chhay and Robert LaPreze for a six-pack of beer Chhay sold to an underage police intern Aug. 15 at Village Liquors in the 12200 block of Route 108, Clarksville. Two members of the liquor board, which is made up of the five County Council members, wanted a harsher penalty - declaring the liquor license null and void because of an unusual administrative wrinkle.

I am writing on behalf of the Lansdowne Improvement Association, Inc. regarding a petition submitted by applicants Robert Maith and Seung Chul Yang regarding Renee's Lounge at 3911 Hollins Ferry Road. The abovementioned applicants are requesting a change of liquor license classification from Class B (restaurant) to Class D (tavern - beer, wine and liquor). LIA leadership is adamantly opposed to this change. Throughout Baltimore County, it is generally expected that liquor licensees shall operate their establishments in such a manner as to avoid disturbing the peace, tranquillity, safety, health and quiet of the neighborhood.

In the last few hectic weeks before Christmas, word got around by way of a published legal notice in local newspapers that restaurateur Ted Bauer, owner of the popular Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley — home of the $11 heirloom tomato salad, $43 12-ounce filet mignon and $28 organic chicken breast — was requesting a liquor license transfer from the Baltimore County Liquor License Commissioners. It quickly became apparent to readers of the legal notices and loyal patrons of the Valley Inn that the 88-year tenure of the Hatfield family, who began serving meals there in 1922, was about to come to an end. The day after my article was published about the impending change in ownership coming to the venerable Brooklandville inn that had fed and slaked the thirst of patrons since 1832, the request of license transfer was quickly granted by the commissioners on Dec. 20 without opposition.

The Baltimore liquor board is forcing the businessman buying Velleggia's restaurant in Little Italy to reapply to transfer its liquor license to his name, a bureaucratic process that likely will further delay the sale of the popular trattoria. But in announcing the decision, liquor board Commissioner Edward Smith Jr. made it clear that the action was not due to complaints by Little Italy residents who accused buyer Terry Lee Coffman Jr. -- who for about a year has leased the property -- of holding a wild dance party there.

A bill that would allow the transfer of six liquor licenses to central Towson got a lukewarm reception yesterday from Baltimore County senators, who applauded the goal of revitalizing the county seat but questioned how much proponents had consulted licensees. The bill, sponsored by Sen. James Brochin, a Towson Democrat, and supported by County Councilman Vincent J. Gardina, is part of what they call a holistic effort to make Towson an attractive shopping and dining destination. They told the county's senatorial delegation yesterday that they are working to clean up blighted properties, increase parking and provide tax incentives, but that developers won't be interested in the area unless they know they will be able to get liquor licenses.
